Cocktail – Bloody Vampire Kiss Martini – Halloween

Bloody Vampire Kiss Martini

Take a French Martini, cross it with a Vampire, ditch the juice and add a splash of bubbly and you have given birth to a Vampire Kiss Martini. The taste of the drink itself is anything but scary, it’s actually very elegant and something that would work not only forHalloween, but for Valentine’s Day or any Champagne-worthy occasion. For it’s intended holiday, it is perfect because the Chambord gives it a dark, almost black color.vampire

The rim on this cocktail is a little devious because the courtesy image suggests a syrup that drips along the edge while the written recipe indicates the standard sugar rim, which would be crystalline. If you want the syrupy look: drizzle a thin stream of grenadine (or a similar red syrup) on the inside of the rim of the glass. Practice and use frozen glasses for the best visual results.

1 1/2 oz Finlandia Vodka

1 1/2 oz Korbel Champagne

3/4 oz Chambord black raspberry liqueur

Red sugar for rimming

Rim the glass with red sugar (use food coloring) or drop in a set of wax vampire teeth for a real surprise.  Pour vodka and half of the Chambord in a martini glass.  Top with Champagne.  Pour the remaining Chambord over the back of a spoon to make it float.
